Shane Victorino Signs With Boston; Justin Uptin Rumors Squashed

Despite not being high up on Ruben Amaro’s list of center field candidates, Shane Victorino is off the board.

According to numerous reports, Victorino has agreed to a three-year, $39 million deal with the Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox won’t announce the deal until Victorino passes a physical.

Victorino was traded to the Dodgers at the deadline where he finished the season. He garnered attention from the Indians as well as the Red Sox, as well as being rumored to be on Amaro’s list. (Amaro squashed those reports today.)

Victorino had a short comment on those rumors, said Jim Salisbury in this tweet:

Matt Gelb has more.

JUSTIN UPTON RUMORS — Earlier today, there were reports the Phillies were interested in acquiring Justin Upton from the Diamondbacks in a trade centered around Cliff Lee.

Amaro also shot that report down.
